Don't be led astray by the cute label; this Cabernet is deadly serious. It's blended with 9% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah and 1% Petit Verdot for added complexity and depth and aged in 100% French oak barrels to impart extra shading. Hunt for aromas and flavours of blackcurrant, toasty vanilla and campfire smoke and pair the wine with grilled steaks or game.
Tasting Note: Ironically, under Duckhorn's Decoy label, this wine is the real thing. It clearly demonstrates that you needn't spend triple digits to find satisfying wine with real character. Delivering more than the price suggests, there's a well-integrated combination of prominent cassis-like fruitiness and subtle savory components. Mild, smooth tannins allow immediate consumption and juicy acidity in the finish prevents palate fatigue. Perfect for flank steak on the grill this summer. Score - 90.
